BNY Mellon FutureLegacy 4 Fund

Objective: To achieve capital growth and potential for income over the long term (5 years or more) while being managed to a pre-defined level of risk. The Fund will aim to maintain a risk profile classification of 4 from a scale of 1 (lowest) to 10 (highest) which is assessed against the risk ratings scale provided by an external third-party risk rating agency.
Benchmark: This fund is actively managed without benchmark-related constraints. The Fund uses a composite index, comprising 10% SONIA GBP, 45% BAML Global Broad Index GBP Hedged and 45% MSCI ACWI GBP NR as a point of reference (comparator) against which the ACD invites Shareholders to compare the Fund’s performance. The ACD considers the composite index to be an appropriate comparator because it includes a broad representation of the asset classes, sectors and geographical areas in which the Fund predominantly invests.
